Calf of Man is the perfect home for seals

Sat, 06 Oct 2012

The Manx Wildlife Trust have started their annual seal pup survey on the Calf of Man geared toward getting a clearer idea of the birthing habits of the seals and their rough population numbers in Manx waters.


A team of volunteers will take up week long shifts on the Island to get a full picture of the pupping season.

The survey also underpins just how important the Calf of Man is for the seals around the Isle of Man.

Eleanor Stone spent last week on duty; she told us a bit more about the early figures she’s recorded.
